Festival 2009

2009 marked a huge leap forward for the Toronto Independent Film Festival.

 

The 2nd Toronto Independent Film Festival was a huge hit.  Over 5 days, Sept 26-30, 2010 we screened almost 100 films to over 1100 students and film fans.  The festival staff would like to thank everyone who participated and attended, and to extend a special "thank you" to the Department of Media Studies and the University Film Club for their support.
